Larry Craig And The "What Ifs"

Classical Values has some good perspective on the whole Larry Craig debacle. One important lesson...always get a lawyer when accused of a crime. In a country where "If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you at no cost," there's no excuse. No doubt Senator Craig didn't want to bring any one's attention to the incident and thought his clout could cover it up. That will go down as one of the biggest political blunders in history.

But more importantly, there is a big civil rights issue here that needs to be addressed. This officer is my opinion is entrapping people and that's an abuse of power. There may be many in the gay political community happy to see a conservative Republican driven out of office, but they should not be heartened by this incident, they should be outraged.
